Hey everyone!
Just bought a black 2017 trailhawk last week, it's my first jeep and the newest car i've owned so far and i'm liking it.
The previous owner installed a k&n cold air intake and a pedal commander p4. The k&n add a nice engine grunt a bit round on higher rpm. The pedal commander is amazing, put it in sport+ and the accelerator is super sensitive and responsive. I would recommend everybody to install one.

On another note, I feel like i'm not getting a lot of range from a full tank, I filled twice but haven't gone to empty yet but at half tank I've got both times around 190 km's I don't know if thats what everyone is getting or the k&n and the pedal commander has lowered my range, I've had a mix of driving styles within that period of time, sometimes with the pedal commander off, and sometimes driving slow. My average mpg on the trip info screen is 12.5 L/100km.

Firsts upgrades I would like to do is a lift kit, some beefier all terrain tires and wheel spacers, at least on the rear, I feel like the rear tires look way to far in compared to the body.

Welcome! Looks like you're getting around 23mpg, which is slightly on the low side. Probably due to the k&n and power commander like you said.
Another thing to remember is these have a fairly small tank; smaller than most.
Car looks great though! Enjoy it!

Welcome to the forum!

As for your questions, I'm well ahead of your fuel economy. In the 12,000 miles I've owned it my average is 31.4MPG(US) -- thats about 7.5L/100km. Granted I do a lot of highway driving, but a lot of it is around 70MPH where the fuel economy isn't as good as it is around 55MPH.

It may be that your improved performance is at the cost of your fuel economy.

I'm going to test with the stock airbox and the pedal commander off to see the range I get
